Editing 101: Creating a title in Premiere Pro CS3Host jeff Schell offers tips on improving your titling skills
In this week's podcast, host Jeff Schell walks you through a few quick methods of making your titles appear less "computer-generated." This includes adding a linear gradient fill to the title as well as adding a soft Gaussian Blur to reduce the "computer crispness" of the text.
Jeff also shows you how to quickly add Lighting Effects to your title to create subtle changes in color that give your titles a more professional appearance. And finally, Jeff walks you through an alternate method for creating a dramatic glow around your title, instead of using the horrendous built-in "Alpha Glow" effect.
In this video podcast, host Jeff Schell goes over the titling tool in Premiere Pro CS3 and gives some tips on how to improve your titles. He also shows how to make a glow behind your title, working in the title styles panel, and offers up some tricks when working in the title styles panel.
